Hrithik Roshan’s first job on a film set was of an assistant director. Much before making his acting debut with Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai in 2000, Hrithik assisted his father Rakesh Roshan on films like Khudgarz, King Uncle, Karan Arjun and Koyla. With the release of his first film itself, Hrithik caught the fancy of Indian youth and became an overnight star. The actor gave a slew of flops post his debut but bounced back with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham released in 2001. He is best known for his performances in Lakshya, Krrish, Dhoom 2, Jodhaa Akbar, Guzaarish, Agneepath and Kaabil. Winner of six Filmfare Awards, Hrithik got separated from his wife of 14 years, Sussanne Khan amid a lot of attention from the media and fans. The actor got embroiled in a controversy in 2016 when he filed a lawsuit against Kangana Ranaut accusing her of cyber stalking and harassment. Kangana has denied the charges and the legal battle between the two is still on.
